The Internet Reacted Hilariously To John Travolta At The Oscars

"I'm going to kill you, Brendadirk Cramplescrunch."

Posted on

If there's one thing that can be said about the 2015 Oscars, it's that John Travolta certainly made an impression. First, there's this awkward kiss.

As well as this whole lot of face touching when he made amends with Idina Menzel.

So fans online of course immediately expressed their thoughts.

Starting a petition for John Travolta to stop lightly touching Idina Menzel.

Most were pretty confused.

Idina Menzel probably watched Grease as a kid and wished that one day John Travolta would touch her face. Bet she's rethinking that now.

New phrases were coined.

From now on, awkward moments should be called 'John Travolta' moments.

Especially thanks to this Reddit Photoshop battle.

Which resulted in priceless gems like this.

And this.

But then things just got weird, as they usually do.

Internet, we love you.
